Division of Morphological Sciences and Biostatistics

The Division of Morphological Sciences and Biostatistics was created within the Boonshoft School of Medicine in 2011 to unite scientists in the pursuit of excellence in biomedical research on the form and function of the human body. The primary mission of the division is to conduct research within the morphological sciences and biostatistics relevant to public health; to disseminate knowledge in a timely and meaningful fashion to all those interested; to educate and train future leaders in the biomedical morphological sciences; to serve the community by providing a resource for knowledge and information; and to serve as a model for scientific integrity.

Richard Sherwood, Ph.D., director of the Division of Morphological Sciences and Biostatistics, explains how the
center's research contributes to public health and the economic growth of the region.

Dana Duren, Ph.D., associate professor of community health and a researcher with the Division of Morphological Sciences and Biostatistics, and Richard Laughlin, M.D., professor and chair of orthopaedic surgery, sports medicine and rehabilitation, presented the keynote address, “Building a Translational Research Collaboration in Orthopaedic Surgery,” at the Boonshoft School of Medicine's Central Research Forum on Oct. 24, 2013.
